Current economical and demographical crises of civil society in remarkable way give weight to need
of developing young people. Despite the fact that nowadays European Union opens up more and more possibilities for youth it also throws down the gauntlet what effects in higher level of youngsters who
are giving up schools and jobs, who are also at risk of poverty, social exclusions, who decided on going abroad or decrease their social station. Youth engage in a public life (voluntary, social campaigns,
non-formal groups) unwillingly – just 13,9% of people under 25 (primary data: Klon/Jawor) where three fourth are women actively take part in a social work. There is many reasons such as: consumer life model, a lack of activities in schools regarding to civil society, shortage of authorities, low awareness
of creative and socially useful ways of spending free time.
